I have a bonus comic today. The idea for this one came up while I was working on the “What’s in the bag?” page. The page needed more images. What figure do I have that would search bags? a cop of course. I thought about using Chief Wiggum but he’s not intimidating. I’ve made a few minor changes to the What’s in the bag page, just rearranging a few things. See the link at the top of the blog.
Today’s Robot is an imaginex Robot Police figure. This is my son’s toy. The arms move up and down and the turbines spin if you push a button on top.

McDonald’s has the Despicable Me 2 Minion toys in their Happy meals. All toys have some kind of action feature. There are eight to collect. This is Phil he has a whistle. Visit Happy Meal.com to see animations of the toys.
The toys are a nice size but are not poseable.
The McDonald’s in my area have a happy meal special on Tuesday nights. Tues from 4pm till 9pm Happy Meals are $1.99. Check your location to see if they offer this deal.
Screen grabs from the happy meal site. So you can see all the toys. Visit the site to see how to use the toy features, see some clips, and download some coloring pages.
They also have some activity sheets at Happy Meal.com

Update: Someone found this blog by searching “are the despicable me 2 blind bags available at Target?” The answer as far as I can tell in no. At least not yet. An associate tried to help my wife find them there. They checked the despicable me 2 toys, the card end cap and the card and toys at the register. They did not have them. He said if we had the UPC we could scan an see if they were in store. So next time I went to Target I took the barcode from a bag and scanned it and the self scan. The scanner said item not found. So Target does not currently have the blind bags. They do have the action figures and they are cheaper there than at Toys R Us or K-mart. TRU and K-mart are the only place I’ve found the blind bags so far.
Despicable Me 2 opens in theaters today. McDonald’s will have Minion toys in Happy Meals sometime in July. Happy Meal.com still has Hot wheels and Twinkle toes listed as current toy. Despicable Me toys are coming soon. So maybe this week. When I see them I’ll let you know.
